According to a recent press release, “HashiCorp, a leader in cloud automation software, today announced day-zero support for the new AWS Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) with HashiCorp Terraform. EKS is the newest managed service offered by AWS and will allow users to create Kubernetes clusters and incorporate other AWS services, like auto-scaling, without the large amounts of manual configurations previously required. HashiCorp has updated the existing Terraform AWS provider so that users can provision the AWS EKS service by defining it as a dedicated resource within their configuration files. Customers use Terraform to provide a consistent provisioning workflow across AWS and other environments. Terraform support for AWS EKS means users bring Kubernetes on AWS into their IT infrastructure faster and more easily, following the standard provisioning workflows that the operations teams already know.”
Chris Jackson, director of cloud platforms at Pearson, a learning company, commented, “Containers are the most important element of our application platform right now. We feel EKS provides a great option as a managed Kubernetes environment on AWS, but we did need a consistent way to provision across our infrastructure, which also extends to include other technologies… We use HashiCorp Terraform to provision the breadth of our public cloud infrastructure fleet and the immediate support for EKS within Terraform will allow us to migrate our teams to managed services faster and allow us to focus on new areas of value for our internal developer teams sooner.”
